An "Eagles want Larry Fitzgerald" rumor

New, comments

Over on Gary "G" Cobb's site a writer of his is reporting that the Eagles are pursing a trade for Cardinals' WR Larry Fitzgerald. G has also talked about this rumor on his 610 WIP show.

I'm going to say to take this one with a grain of salt. Not to put down Cobb or his writers because I certainly hope they're correct in this case... but I'd feel a little more confident if it were guys like Schefter, Clayton, or Glazer reporting this one.

A source with knowledge of the situation has told me that the Philadelphia Eagles are going after Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald pretty hard.  Fitzgerald, 24, will be 25 years old when the 2008 season starts and has already been to two Pro Bowls (2005, 2007).

The Eagles have been widely criticized for not having enough playmaking receivers on offense.  Fitzgerald told 610 WIP sports radio in Philadelphia during Super Bowl week that the Eagles are on a short list of teams he'd like to play for if dealt (he backed off of that a bit during the Pro Bowl week).

A few weeks ago I posted the Fitzgerald audio that was referred to in the article.
